The Rules of the Game, er, Party

Padsworth and DragonDrop, here, with an important linky party announcement!

Every game has its rules, right? Well, our party is no exception. But they are extremely easy to follow!

Check these out!

1. When the linky party begins, use the URL of your blogpost or your Flickr/Instagram photo in the linky sign-up. That way partiers can find you easily!

2. Include a backlink in your post or photo description (in other words, a link to jump back here to the party) for the convenience of the party-goers.

3. Each contestant may enter two photos maximum - if you don't have a blog, you can enter two on Flickr/Instagram. If you blog, your entries can be two blog posts, or one on the blog, and one on Flickr/Instagram.

4. Last year we still had some issues with Google plus contestants....leaving comment love was problematic. It seems that not all of the playgrounds on the Interwebs have easily-opened gates between them. For this year, let's say that Google plus is OK, but you need to have a way for party-goers to leave comments if they are not "on" Google plus. On your entry text, include a note with your email for them. Like this: person(at)gmail(dot)com.  If it is at all possible for you to do so, use a blog post or Flickr -- those work the best!

5. Don't be a post-and-run contestant. Hop around and see the other contestants. That is what makes our party so fun! Plus, if you travel and comment on each entry in the show, that qualifies you for an extra entry in the prize drawings!

6. And speaking of comments, make sure you leave comment love . . . no rude comments, OK? Resist the temptation to say, "Cats rule, dogs drool!" and other such things. (Grin)

7. There are four categories, and you need to say which one you are "in." Dog (pup) on quilt, Cat (kitten) on quilt, Other animal on quilt, and Pet-themed quilted project.

8. The party will remain open for contestants for ten days. After that, the voting will begin! And after that, winners are announced!

This is all just too exciting!

See you at the party!



  1. Hi Jacque! Thank you for hosting again this the most fun quilt event of the year! Nero and Hanna are so waiting for the game and me of course, too! x Teje

  2. I don't think I will make it as a contestant this time, but I will be visiting.

  3. I missed last year's so I'm happy to be on time this year :-) That last picture of the kitten is too cute!

  4. lol....the grandkids love that "cats rule, dogs drool" saying.

  5. Thanks for the hosting the show! Just wanted to ask about categories: will there be separate link-ups or do I just say in the blogpost what the category is? And by the way, what are the categories this year anyway?)))

  6. looking forward to some pet fun!!

  7. Hah! I was thinking about this the other day!!

  8. I don't blog or do much else, but I sure appreciate the chance at something. I vote for three cats ranch, Ms Sadie paw fert portrait and the worms on the back as being #1

  9. Hm..perhaps I do need to take a pic of my dog who thinks every quilt I place on floor is for her!

  10. This sounds like fun so I'm entering for the 1st time, in the pet themed project category.

  11. I entered a horse pic, but don't think I stated the cat/dog egory. And..... as he is neither, please accept him as other animal on quilt. He was the only horse who cooly accepted the challenge to pose with this scary rug thingy. Thankyou.


I am so happy to hear from you! I try to respond to all comments, but lately blogger has made that difficult! If you do not receive a reply, it may be because your profile is set on "no-reply". Edit your profile, and click "show my email address" and we'll be able to talk!
Please do not leave links to un-related blogs or products. That is not good etiquette and they will be deleted! :)
